One of the new faces in Genoa City may look familiar to some viewers. High-powered businesswoman Rebekah Barlow on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS is being played by actress Jennifer Taylor who some might recognize from playing Chelsea on the CBS sitcom TWO AND A HALF MEN.
Rebekah is holding meetings with people looking for her to invest in their companies. Phyllis and Billy are hoping she’ll work with Jabot, and are using Nick as bait. But Devon is dealing with his own issues and is unprepared to make a solid pitch to the businesswoman for Hamilton-Winters, and could blow the deal. Who will Rebekah choose to do business with and how long will she be in town? You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out!
Taylor got her start back in 1998 in the film Wild Things and playing Laura Riley on the short-lived TV series MIAMI SANDS. She has also guest-starred in numerous primetime series like DIAGNOSIS MURDER, CHARMED, GHOST WHISPERER, and NCIS. Her most recent regular primetime gig was playing Anne Seery on Showtime’s critically-acclaimed series SHAMELESS. But Taylor is probably most famous for playing Charlie’s girlfriend, Chelsea, in many episodes of TWO AND A HALF MEN over the years (after playing three different guest roles in earlier episodes!).
According to her Wikipedia page, Taylor was born in Hoboken, NJ, and grew up in Coral Springs, FL, twice being first runner-up in the Miss Florida USA pageants. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Paul Taylor, and their two children.
